New CCSVI research; Zamboni & Embry pen editorials

Post by happy_canuck » Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:13 am

The April 2010 issue of "International Angiology" is devoted almost all space to CCSVI. Unfortunately, it's a fee-only jounral and my university doesn't subscribe. But, we can see the Abstracts (a couple articles have been posted here already this morning) and get a glimpse into the future.

Can anyone get access to the full articles? Would love to know more!

Link to journal's table of contents where all artcles and editorials are listed:

Those are still links to just the Abstracts too.

So, when is there "enough" research for people to stop saying there's "not enough research"?

When the research is meaningful, or meaningful conclusions can be drawn from it.

this research is meaningful. The paper that uses a sample of 8000+patients must just be archival shots. I take it as bad news how a high correlation is being found between degree of seerity of ms and ccsvi. They don't seem to be finding enough people with bad ccsvi and mild ms which would be the case in early stages of all ms. If ccsvi doesnt progress too which seems to be almost proven it does.

Would it not be worth it for us to set up a fund, through donations of TiMS members, to get full access to these types of papers?

If you have a university with a decent research library in your town go there. Take along a USB flash drive. Access the journal articles from one of their computers and save the pdf files to your flash drive. Print them when you get home.

I don't think that can be determined just from the abstracts.

Also, why would a journal for medical professionals dealing with vascular issues publish an editorial from Ashton Embry?

Yeah I thought that was a bit bizarre myself.

Despite his "Dr" status, Embry remains a layman by definition and his attempts to shoulder to the forefront of the CCSVI fray only adds to the "dog and pony show" atmosphere and actually drags the theory of CCSVI farther from legitimacy.
That's what I was thinking. It appears this particular journal made the decision to devote an entire issue to CCSVI papers, which may be a good thing. But it seems the lead proponents of this theory are trying find anyone with an audience to portray this in the most favorable way possible.

It's called public relations, and it's the most effective way to gain awareness. With awareness comes more funding for studies, which will in turn either provide further evidence or disprove the theory.

Ashton Embry may not be a neurologist or radiologist, but he cares about people with MS and is willing to put his money into CCSVI research. Direct-MS has made a $75,000 grant to BNAC for CCSVI research. For every MStery party that is held, he will match $1000.00 up to $75000.00.

Everyone here can throw a MStery party. My sister-in-law and I are hosting a MStery Party Picnic for BNAC in June. Get involved like Ashton Embry !!! Go to bnac.net and follow the "donate" button.
